    I also have this problem. It hums and continues until I press the remote control twice before it stops. I am unable to use the control.

Check the door springs and also the drive gear. The gear is a white nylon gear just in front of the motor unit. It will be pretty obvious if it is going bad. The door spring may be broken.

It sounds like your remote may have deaad battery OR got de-programmed. I hope you have another door into the garage. You NEVER should rely on a radio remote as the ONLY access to the garage! Many failures can happen to prevent the remote from working.

IF you can kill the power to the opener in the garage, do that for a couple minutes then repower and try again...

And for goodness sakes cut in a new door as EVEN in a condition where the power fails in a disaster you want to have access to your vehicle... this is a "wake up call" for you! There is also a keyed lock that can give you access to the manual trip cord to allow manual opening of the door.

When did your remote and keypad quit working? Was it when you programmed the Homelink? It sure sounds like you have a bad logic board.

Garage door opened, won't close


If you can press and hold the wall button and the door will go down, you have a photo eye issue. Check the photo eyes at the bottom of the door.

Craftman Garaged Door Unit Stopped Working


This sounds like you will have to replace the logic board. Whether you repair or replace get a surge protector 900 joules or higher unless you want it to happen again. You can get replacement parts at searspartsdirect.com. Thanks BB

Liftmaster 1/3 HP - humming, but does not open.


It's the gear drive. There are kits online for about $40, if you're semi-handy you can replace it yourself. Search for liftmaster replacement parts.
